Consisting of 26,606 square miles in the states of Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah, the Navajo Nation is the largest Native American reservation in the U.S., and the second most populous. Over 180,000 enrolled members live on the reservation; the total enrollment is over 290,000. The Nation is governed by the Council Delegates (tribal council) comprised of elected officials from across the reservation. There are 110 "chapters" on the reservation, each acting as a local subdivision of the tribal government. The Bureau of Indian Affairs administers certain affairs of the Navajo Nation through five geographic "Agencies": Tuba City (Western), Chinle, Shiprock (Northern), Ft. Defiance, and Eastern.

Through the Federally Recognized Tribal Extension Program (FRTEP), Arizona Cooperative Extension has offices in Window Rock, Shiprock, and Tuba City.
